  1. Sadly, I still haven’t seen this one. I have seen the Spielberg/Cruise version. I don’t hate it like most others seem to, but i recognize that it isn’t great. I need to just watch this one already.

    1. Definitely. I was amazed at how good the visual effects were for a film of this vintage – the seams and strings being pulled here are kitschy by today’s standards but overall i can understand how audiences of the day were utterly wowed. More than a couple of shots made me gasp with their ingenuity.
